Introduction: The COVID 19 pandemic has created difficulties for children registered under Children's Palliative Care in Mumbai. 2 hospitals who have started Services last year would like to share their experiences on difficulties faced by Children and their families and unique ways in which solutions were found to help them surmount all odds. Results: Some difficulties faced included transport to visit hospitals for doctor's care and essential medications; for those in native place, unavailability of doctors and medications. Difficulty to return home for those from out of Mumbai and vice versa. Unavailability of rations for those who were not original Mumbai residents. Conclusions: Unique solutions were found for each family. These are presented in this paper.
